Ghostly goings on at The Spring

  • 16 — 17 May 2014 8pm-1am

We ask what goes on once the sun goes down? Do the artefacts come alive? Do Ghostly figures cluster in the café? Maybe ghouls lurk in the research room, whilst phantoms play in the theatre?

Families and visitors can come along in pyjamas or even bring a sleeping bag for this unique family experience with scary stories, live music from FB Pocket Orchestra, crafts, ghost walks and much more.

We will also be joined by award-winning children’s author Vanessa Curtis who will be reading spine tingling extracts from her popular book The Haunting of Tabitha Grey.
